Healthcare for the 99% Joins Occupy Bushwick & Occupy Town Square to present a day of teach-ins, political discussion, food, music, and celebration!
Starting earlier this year, mobile, daytime occupations called Occupy Town Squares have been held in parks and other public spaces around New York City. With info tables, teach-ins, trainings, and political discussions, each event seeks to reclaim our public commons in the fullest possible sense: for the purposes of democratic civic engagement, to strengthen our communities, share our resources and to broaden and deepen our connections with public space and with one another. Whether you consider yourself a supporter of the movement or not, we want to meet you! Come share your ideas and stories, learn about the movement, argue with us, collaborate with us.
